How Digital Is Changing Our Reading Habits

How Digital Is Changing Our Reading Habits | mobile digital reading | Scoop.it

So what is different? Different in the digital medium is the ubiquitous activity of reading.

"Using an app called GoodReader, Landmark students read books in a single column of 42-point text that only allowed for two to three words per line. 'The screen acts like blinders,' explains Schneps. 'You end up reading vertically.' "

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds |

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | | mobile digital reading | Scoop.it

The Pearson Foundation’s second-annual Survey on Students and Tablets polled 1,206 college students and 204 high school seniors about their tablet ownership and usage.
